York Chinese Church

This is the interior of St Helen's church at the corner of Stonegate. It is a Church of England parish church founded around 1000 years ago. The fabric of the church is basically14th & 15th century but the present layout of the nave dates from 1858. This was the parish church of the glass painters and contains mediaeval as well as more modern stained glass. The Sunday service is in Mandarin and English and led by York Chinese Church.


  1. What a beautiful church. Do you have a large Chinese population in York?

  2. I am surprised that there is such a large Chinese population there. Don't know why I am!

  3. There is not an especially large chinese population in York, there is no equivalent of Chinatown for example. The congregation at St Helens usually numbers around 40, small but enthusiastic by the look of it.

  4. A lovely church. I always like your history lessons, too.
